Growing older has its share of perks, like traveling alone to a foreign city or decorating your home the way you like. However, it isn’t all rosy, especially the effect it has on your skin, with the threat of a wrinkle or two always looming. While you alter your lifestyle around your maturity, do the same with your beauty regime by giving it a redux. Here’s a tweak or two to add a mature edge to your beauty regime to keep the sculpted skin of your 20’s going strong…
 

Tailor make your skin care regime

Tailor make your skin care regime

Although you’ve gotten by with the occasional swipe of moisturizer and sunscreen, your skin needs a reliable regime to count on as your grow older. Our go-to for most mornings is the Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Facial Foam that makes for a gentle cleanser, followed up with the Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Serum which has collagen boosters and peptide that give our skin a natural bounce, something we’ve come to rely on as we grow older. If we’re heading out into the sun, the Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Day Crème with SPF 15 PA++ is a must have for sun protection. With added retinol and glycerin, it also gives our skin a moisture boost.

 

Make exercise a habit

Make exercise a habit

You’ve relied on your good metabolism and an occasional workout to get by thus far but all of that is about to change as you move from your late twenties into your thirties. Take charge of your body and stay fit by finding a form of exercise that you enjoy, be it aquarobics, free running, lifting weights or dancing. Allot 30 minutes of your day to exercise and you’ll notice the benefits on your body as well as your face (exercise helps you sweat and sweating is essential to good skin.) Soon enough, you’ll find that exercise is quite an addictive and enjoyable part of your day and you’ll want to try out as many workout forms as possible.

 

Don’t forget your hands

Don’t forget your hands

Called helping hands for good reasons; they are often forgotten in the grooming process although they show signs of ageing at the earliest. Pamper your hands with a scrub and moisturiser routine and indulge in a manicure every three weeks. There are few things better than getting a massage and a change in polish before a busy work week. no?

 

Add healthy fats to your diet

Add healthy fats to your diet

First things first; not all fats are bad. That’s why you need to make a healthier choice and add the good fats to your diet. The inclusion of unsaturated fats into your diet helps manage weight, boosts mental capacity and stimulates the skin from within. Take your pick of healthy fats from a selection of nuts, seeds, eggs, fish, avocado and tofu for your next meal and watch your skin grow healthier and happier.
